Loss For Words

My friends, I pray all is well. I have been so busy with work and enjoying my private life. Nevertheless, I must not neglect to write my blogs. God is still the ruler of my life!

Let me ask you, have you ever been in a situation where someone says something to you and you were at a loss for words? Well, that happens to me every now and then when I do not have on the full armor of God and then I feel stupid. Well, as I was studying one of Ken Hemphill's devotionals titled, "We Can", Mr. Hemphill made three important points in this particular lesson in regards to being at a loss for words. He said that there is a way for us to answer the critic, but we must be very confident in doing so. Okay, so how do we answer the critic without being at a loss for words? Mr. Hemphill says:
1)First, we must receive it; that is, study diligently and ask God for direction and understanding of the Word;
2)We must appropriate it; that is, our willingness to obey;
3)We must delight in it; that is, we must feast on the Word daily, morning, noon and night.

When we study God's Word, we must study with a purpose, we must study truthfully and then we must ask God for understanding of what we have read. As we keep on studying the Word, we will find that when someone says something that may catch us off guard, we can hit them with the Word because God gives us a spirit of boldness, not timidity. When we are grounded in the Word, God gives us the ability to answer the critic lovingly and cheerfully, leaving them no choice but to leave us alone.

My friends, I encourage you to get in the Word, study daily, study with an open mind, study diligently, but most importantly pray before you read and pray after you read
the Word asking God for clarity.

Be blessed,
Therese from Belize

My Life Re-written

My friends, I pray all is well with you. God has been good to me and I thank Him for every blessing He has bestowed upon me and my family!

I recall my Pastor, Rev. Dr. Felix G. Williams, III saying that favor is not fair. Guess what? He is right, favor is not fair. Favor is blessing God gives us even when we do not deserve it. I thank God for favor. Rev. Jamal Bryant prophesied, once the anointing of God comes in my life, no one can separate me from the love of God. Rev. Bryant said it does not matter who likes me or who does not like me, because I have the love of God. And because I have the love of God, He has re-written my life, He has given me a new slate to start all over. My friends, God has re-written my life, He has re-written all the bad and has turned them into good. Now, look at me, look at my life and all that God has done for me. All I want to do is shout about it! All I want to do is dance about it! All I want to do is sing about it! All I want to do is keep praising God! Rev. Bryant said that when we praise God, He will change us, He will reorder our steps. Glory.

My favorite apostle, Paul, tells us in 2 Corinthians 5:17, therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come. In other words, my friends, when we confess our sins and ask God for forgiveness and ask Him to come into our lives, He wipes our slates clean, no matter what we have done or with whom we have done, whether sins of commission or sins of omission. I am a living witness that God can clean us up so good ands fresh when we submit to His will. I was once lost, but I am now saved by God's good grace and I am eternally grateful. God has surely re-written my life and I know if He did it for me, He will do the same for you. Be obedient to His will and submit to the Lord. Your life will be re-written and you will see how God will just use you to do good, you will see how much easier and happier life will be when you are cleansed in the blood of the Lamb. It is easy as a-b-c to get your life re-written; all you have to do is accept, believe and confess. To God be the glory.

Claim It, In The Name Of Jesus!

To God be the glory, for His name is worthy to be praised!

My friends, I had declared on the 1st of January,2010 that this will be my year and my family's year. I believe because I am speaking life into it and I have faith that God will make it happen for us. I have already claimed victory in the name of Jesus. When we have vision, it stretches our faith because we have to wait on the Lord to do His thing. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen (Hebrews 11:1). Rev. Williams said that faith is not only spoke, but it is actually doing something. He said that when your situation talks to you, you have to holla back at it. Speak to your life, speak to your pessimism, speak to your negativity; speak to your brokeness; just speak life!

When we claim something or someone in the name of the Jesus, God hears our cry. God promises us over and over that when we call on His name, He will supply ALL our needs! Claim it, my friends, whatever it is, whatever you desire, claim it in the name of Jesus. There is power in the blood, power in blood of our Lord. I encourage you to begin claiming back your life, begin to claim back your husband, begin to claim in the name of Jesus that your finances will be released; claim it in the name of Jesus. Claim it, claim it, claim it. Look at me, I already claimed claimed victory, I claimed my life, my prosperity, my finances, I claimed everything in the name of Jesus.

God bless you and I pray that instead of worrying, you will begin to claim that thing or person.

Beauty From Within

Greetings, my friends!

I give all the glory and honor to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I just thank God for making me a beautiful person, beautiful on the outside, but most importantly beautiful on the inside. People often tell me what a kind person I am, what a humble spirit I have. My response has always been the same, it is natural beauty because God has given it to me--it is called favor. We do not all have God's favor of having beauty on the inside. Some of us are so very beautiful on the outside, the side that man sees, but the inside is rotten stink, the side that God cares about. I tell you the truth, I thank God for giving me beauty on the inside. I am not the most beautiful woman, but that is okay with me because what is important is that I have a clean heart that is pleasing unto the Lord.

In 1 Peter 3:2-4, Peter advised wives, "It is not fancy hair, gold jewelry, or fine clothes that should make you beautiful." "No", Peter said, "your beauty should come from within you-the beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit that will never be destroyed and is very precious to God." (New Century Version) My friends, let us not get caught up on the outside appearance--how good someone looks, how "foine" that person looks. Looks are deceiving and we must be careful to not fall prey.

In 1 Samuel 16:7, the Lord had told Samuel, "...God does not see the same way people see. People look at the outside of a person, but the Lord looks at the heart." (New Century Version) Let us fix our hearts, let us get the inside of us clean, so that we can have a gentle and quiet spirit, which pleases the Lord. I pray that God create in me a clean heart and renew my spirit because I thrive for a beautiful inside. If you agree with me, you pray the same, "Lord, please create in me a clean heart and renew my spirit." You know, I can remember my grandmother used to always say to me, "it does not matter how ugly you are on the outside, if you have a heart of gold, it will shine so bright that the heart is what gets noticed." I pray that when people see me they do not judge me by my outward appearance, but by what I have on the inside, that is, a gentle and meek spirit.

God bless.

HELP WANTED: In Need of Paul

God's name is worthy to be praised! I thank God for a new day, a new beginning. As I take on my new role in directing my church's Youth For Christ Ministry, reality has set in...I am in need of a "Paul" in my life.

Rev. Angela Lee Price made me step back and evaluate myself in directing my church's youth ministry. She told me that it seems I am still committed to women's ministry, and I have not fully embraced the youth ministry aspect of my life. I contemplated what she told me and I tell you, she is totally right. I know God has anointed this area of my life and I must be obedient to His will and stay on course. Since I am new in this aspect of ministry, I have begun to start reading articles and look at various youth ministry websites. I came across a very interesting article. The article was titled, The Graying of the American Youth Worker, by David Olshine, Co-founder of Youth Ministry Coaches and Director of Youth Ministries, Columbia International University, Columbia, South Carolina.

Mr. Olshine, in his article, made several great points to help youth ministry workers. However, the point in his article that really resonated with me was his point on refocusing and re-energizing. Mr. Olshine's first point on refocusing and re-energizing is for me to find a Paul, for me be a Timothy. He said that there are few youth workers in their late 30s and 40s who have older mentors. In his article, he stated that we must find an older, wise person to walk with us. My friends, I just love it when God confirms what I need to do and how I need to do it. Thank you Lord.

As you know, I have written so much on Paul because I just love him, I see myself like Paul. God had to blind me in order to make me see the light. I work hard to carry out God's will, that is, spreading the good news of Jesus Christ to any and every one. So, those of you who know me well, know I am not a quitter. I have not quit at anything I have set out to do, so I am not giving up on youth ministry, but I do need a mentor, I need support, I need encouragement, I need a Paul. I will finish this race that I have set out to run. I am a survivor, I have never given up and I will not let Satan get in the way of my doing God's work in youth ministry. Mr. Olshine said Paul was a true survivor. And like Paul, I will keep pressing on and keep holding on to my faith in Christ. In Paul's second letter to his protege, Timothy, he said, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. (2 Timothy 4:7, N.C.V.)

Please continue to pray for me as I set out to do God's will in youth ministry. Please pray for me that I will fight the good fight and will finish the race, while keeping the faith.

God bless.

BE REAL, Ralph S. Marston, Jr.

My friends, I write today with such humility because the devil has been trying everything to get me discouraged in my work with youth ministry. Today, has been a difficult day because I began to feel discouraged, but my Lord told me to keep moving forward. After I prayed for courage to continue my work with the ministry, I looked at a motivational note that I have posted on my wall in my office from Ralph S. Marston, Jr., titled "BE REAL".
Mr. Marston wrote:
"The world will often discourage you from giving love. Give love anyway.
Many times, despite your best efforts, you will not be understood. Keep giving it your best anyway.
The treasures in life are not what you get back. Those things are only shadows of life’s true value.
The real treasures are what you are able to give yourself.
And as long as you give authentically, from the heart, with the best you have, it doesn't really matter what comes of it.
It’s nice to be acknowledged and respected and understood.
Yet even when you’re not acknowledged or understood, there is still great value in doing what you know is right, what you know is best.
Smile a peaceful smile to the depth of your being. Be real, and know that all is well."

It is just amazing how time and time again the Lord sends something or someone my way to give me that message; His answer to what I need to do or where I need to go. I will not let the devil tamper with my service to the Lord. The devil is a liar and I detest liars. I stand on the promises of my Lord. Proverbs 3:5-6 tells me "Trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight." (N.I.V.) I just give God all the praise because He has my back time and time again. My friends, do not ever, ever let the devil try to let you give up on something that God has ordained. Just keep praising God, surround yourself with "real" people, and keep on stepping.

I give God all the praise and glory, because He is the same yesterday, today, and always! My friends, I will keep moving forward as the Lord has directed me to do. I pray you will pick up yourself too and keep moving forward. Please pray for me and I will pray for you.

God bless,

Stop Living In Dreamland

Greetings, my friends! To God be the glory!

I had a conversation today with the Lord because something has been weighing heavily on my mind. My friends, I have been wondering why it is that grown folk choose to live in "dreamland". My own, personal definition of "dreamland" is an imaginary place grown folk "park" so as to enjoy the what-if (not having faith), instead of the when (having faith). To realize one's dream, a person must first and foremost, let God lead the way. Proverbs 16:1 says, "To man belong the plans of the heart, but from the Lord comes the reply of the tongue." (N.I.V.) In other words, the dream, the plan must be from God; it must have God's stamp of approval. Next, when you have the dream or the plan, ordained by God, you must be focused; dedicated and willing and able to put in hard work. I can guarantee you that if you do not let God direct your path, direct your dream and stay focused on that dream or that vision, you will be exactly where you are; that is, in dreamland. What makes me irritated is when grown folk talk about the "ifs". If I only had money, if I only knew the right people; if I only had a computer, if, if, if. As I had told you some time previously, a man of faith says "when", while the unfaithful says "if". See, what these false dreamers and visionaries do not realize is that we serve a God who provides all our needs, we just need to ask, in the name of Jesus. When we ask, in the name of Jesus, the money will come, the right people will be sent our way, doors will be opened.

My friends, stop living in dreamland, you are only fooling yourself, not others. I implore you to let God direct your plans and they will succeed. When God directs my plans, they succeed, no need for me to live a life that is not pleasing to the Lord, a life of "wanna be"; a life of "if". The author of the Book of Proverbs had encouraged me in Chapter 16, verse 3 to "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed." He also warned me, in the same chapter at verse 9, that "In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps." (N.I.V.) I encourage you to submit your plans to the Lord. Dream big dreams, yes, but ask the Lord to direct those dreams. Remember, if it is His will, those dreams will come through no matter what anyone says. Get back in the driving mode, pull yourself out of "park" and submit your plans to the Lord.

God bless,

Thanking God In Good Times and In Bad Times

My friends, I pray all is well and everyone is staying in the Word! I thank God for the forgiveness of my sins and I thank Him for His mercy and grace. I thank God for sparing the people of Belize from man-made and natural disasters. My friends, we must continually praise God in the present and in the future, praise Him now, praise Him today, praise Him in advance. Even though there may be many to ask "why", the Lord has a plan for the country of Haiti and for the people of Haiti. We can only pray and extend our Christian love and assistance to our brothers and sisters in that country. My friends, we do not know what tomorrow holds, so we must live each day like it is our last, whether good or bad.

In Paul's letter to the church in 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, Paul wrote, "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God." My friends, I pray for peace and comfort for the people of the world. I pray that as disciples of Christ, we extend love to all our brothers and sisters. We must keep praising God through good times and in bad times. I know it may be difficult in bad times, but we serve a God who hears our cries. I promise you when you turn your troubles over to the Lord, He takes care of them for you.

With all my heart, mind, and soul, I will continue to thank the Lord in good times and in bad times, and I pray you will too! Be blessed, stay prayed up, keep hanging on to God's everlasting love. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

God bless,

Keep on the Light

What an awesome and mighty God we serve! My friends, I do not have much, but I will let you know, I have plenty of light shining everywhere I go! So, as I sat down this evening reviewing my mails and answering e-mails, my mind went on Luke, the physician by schooling, but a true and honest believer and follower of Jesus Christ. Luke's accounts is so detailed, but it is no surprise because as a physician, one must be very detailed-oriented. So in his letter to his dear friend, Theophilus, he wrote about his account of Jesus' life, God's mercy and grace and forgiveness of our sins and how what he saw and heard made him believe even more. My friends, I hope when you read Luke's account, his joy and excitement jump out at you.

My friends, we cannot and must not allow the devil to sabotage the work that some of us have worked very hard for. As the physician reminded us in the letter to Theophilus, "do not let the light in you become darkness." (Luke 11:35) How do you keep the light shining? You do so by praying each and every day, morning, noon and night. You also forgive others and forgive yourself. You must love the Lord with all your heart, mind, and soul, and love your neighbor as you love yourself. Forgive yourself and forgive others. Everyday is more refreshing!

Keeping your the light on takes dedication, commitment, submission and trust in the Lord. Do not let the devil cause you to hide your light, we are warriors of God's army and we have protected ourselves with the Word. To God be the glory.

Do Not Label Me As A "Single" Parent

Wow, what a fantastic way 2010 has started off for me and my family! We have already won "Family of the Year" award because you see even though I am raising my children in a one-parent household, I can tell you, that they are getting the same attention, the same nurturing, the same love as if there was another parent in the home. I thank God for blessing me at every turn I make. God keeps providing for me and my family. Please do not label me "single" parent because even though you see me raising my kids by myself, I do have my Father who is present in my household each and every day, morning, noon and night! I do have my Father who watches over us and protect me and my children. God is the head of my household.

Joshua 24:17, "As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord." I thank God that I have children who love and adore Him. I am blessed with children who pray for their mother, children you call on the name of Jesus. Labeling me "single" will not help your cause, because the Lord has a plan for me as I raise and nurture my children in a one-parent household.

Just know that my current circumstance does not determine my future, so stop calling me a "single" parent.

Peace and Love

Wearing The Full Armor Of God

My nephew, Jair, in Belize, sent me a beautifully and well-colored Roman soldier who is in full protective gear, from the helmet on his head to the sandals on his feet. Jair reminded me to wear the full armor of God for protection against the devil. I thank God for my little nephew, he is only 6 years old, but he is looking out for his Auntie! God is good.

My friends, my favorite apostle, Paul, encouraged us to be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Paul pleaded with us to "Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand." (Ephesians 6:10-13, N.I.V.)

My friends, Jair sent me this picture so his Auntie can stay in the protection of the Lord. I declare, in the name of Jesus, that I will always wear the belt of truth around my waist; with the breastplate of righteousness in place; my feet wearing the Good News of peace so I can stand strong. Paul encouraged us, my brothers and sisters, to always be ready and never give up (Ephesians 6:14-15). I thank God for using a child to remind me of how I must keep on protecting myself as I walk on the road of healing, peace and joy.

To God be the glory.

Speaking From Personal Experience

My friends, I pray all is well with you. I cannot help but to tell you, like you already do not know, that we serve an awesome God! We have a Father who forgives us of our sins, a God who has mercy on us, a God who promises us eternal life if we serve Him with all our hearts, minds and souls! Now, you would be a fool to not surrender to the promises of the Lord. I can tell you from personal experience that ever since I began relying on the Lord, He has opened doors that were once closed; He supplies all my needs; He has brought me joy and peace down in my heart.

I realize that if you do not know the Lord for yourself, you will have a difficult time understanding and believing what I am saying. You need to know the Lord for yourself; He needs to be your personal Savior. You need to start relying and trusting God for everything and let Him work in and through you. My friends, I promise you that when you start trusting God, you will see a difference in your life. You will get that job promotion, your finances will get better, your children will act better, your spouse will treat you better. I know because ever since God came into my life, things have begun to turn around for the better. I no longer stay in depression, my finances are looking up, I am getting in good health, my children are being blessed exceedingly. Every turn I make, God has a blessing for me. Are you tired of being tired? Then I urge you to turn it over to the Lord, walk with the Lord, believe in the Lord, trust in the Lord. Let Him take care of all your needs.

Jesus, as recorded in John 14:14 said, "You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it." My friends, what better promise than this you need? Just ask. If you are in pain, ask God for healing, in the name of Jesus; need a financial breakthrough? Ask God for that financial miracle, in the name of Jesus. Your spouse is acting up, cheating, walked out on you? Ask God for deliverance and ask God to rebuke that bad behavior, in the name of Jesus. Whatever you desire, my friend, ask God for it and He will give it to you. Just ask God, in the name of Jesus.

My friends, I was once lost, I was once considered a lost soul, I know many people gave up on me, I know many people talked about me, but glory to God, we serve a magnificent and omnipotent Lord because He forgave me of my sins, and ever since then He has been blessing me. The Lord is waiting for you to call His name. God is waiting for you to call on Him in the name of Jesus. Do it today if you are truly tired of being tired. Do not delay for tomorrow is not promised.

May God bring peace to you.

With love,

"If" versus "When"

My friends, I bring greetings in the name of Jesus! God's name is worthy to be praised because I am a living witness of how a prayer changes everything! When we have faith, we know that God will hear our prayer and He will answer our prayer. Faith, according to the author of the Book of Hebrews, is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Hebrew 11:1)

Rev. Jamal Bryant said that people who do not have faith says "if". "If" I get the job; "if" I take that trip; "if" they give me that promotion. On the other hand, a true believer, who has faith says "when". "When" I get that job; "when" I take that trip; "when" they give me that promotion. Rev. Bryant preached that people often lack faith because they have a disconnection to God. I agree with him, so now my question is, how do we get back that connection? We can get back our connection to God when we submit to His will. We submit to His will when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior; when we believe in our hearts that Jesus was crucified, he died, was buried, and on the third day he rose from the grave; and we confess with our mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord and He takes away the sins of the world.

My friends, get back that reconnection with God. Peter in his epistle, 1 Peter 1:8, assures us, "Though you have not seen Him, you love Him; and even though you do not see Him now, you believe in Him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy." Peter is so right. When we have faith, we know that God is in control of everything. With faith, we believe that all things are possible through Christ who strengthens us. When we have faith, we give God all the glory and we praise His name constantly. Stay connected to Christ by having faith. Let God take care of you and all your needs.

I urge you to stay prayed up; I urge you to stay in obedience to the will of God. Have faith, and God will see you through.

God bless you.

Endurance In Running The Race

My friends, to our most glorious God,whose name is worthy to be praised!

I write tonight with all vigor and enthusiasm because even though the devil is trying to let me look in my rear view mirror, I will keep moving forward. I thank God for the anointment of my Pastor, Rev. Felix G. Williams,III. I am telling you the honest truth, this man of God always teaches and delivers the Word directly from God to me.

Rev. Williams said something to me that really touched the very core of my heart. He said that when one quits, it shows lack of character to handle issues of your life. This hit home for me because just recently I thought about quitting and just retreating to the comforts of my personal space. Retreating, I know, will shield me from people whom I do not want to deal with and those whom I simply cannot tolerate around me. This sounds harsh to say as a disciple, but it is the truth. But, to God be the glory, I am not going quit because I have a strong character, I have integrity and I have determination. However, I need the strength to carry on; that is where endurance comes in. Rev. Williams said that sometimes instead of praying to the Lord to get us out of something, we must pray asking God to help us "go through" whatever it is we are going through.

This word, "endurance" is used in many arenas, so I went to the dictionary to look for the simplest definition. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines endurance as "the ability to withstand hardship or adversity; especially, the ability to sustain a prolonged stressful effort or activity." My friends, in running this race of life, we need endurance for sure. Psalm 30:5 encourages me that "...weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the the morning time." When we endure, we come out victorious. The enemy cannot stand us when we endure the pain, the injustice, the accusations, the struggles, the test. When we endure, God promises us to bring us out and because we have God's promises to bring us out, we have hope.

Romans 15:4 says, "For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope." I do not know about you, but as for me, I will keep on running this race, I will endure, because when I look back over my life where I have been to where I am now, it is only by the grace of God that I came through victorious of all the adversities, struggles, battles, injustice, accusations and tests. My friends, it is important that we endure our situations because we do not want to give the devil anything to rejoice over. I am going through this race with my character, integrity, hope, and determination intact because I know I serve an awesome God who gives us what we ask for. If we ask the Lord for endurance during a difficult time, trust me, He will do just that. God delights in His children asking Him for help. I urge you to stay in the race, even if you are in last place, but just do not give up. Giving up, according to Rev. Williams, are for quitters who have no character, integrity or determination. God bless you and may He give you the endurance you need to finish the race, the endurance to carry on the work, the endurance to kick the devil to the curb! As we know, what is important is not how we start the race,but it is how we finish the work.

I pray that if you are thinking about quitting, that you keep your head forward, do not look back in that rear view mirror. Keep pressing forward with all determination and strength. To God be the glory.

Peace and love,
Ta ta

Relying On God's Promises

To God be the glory! I am starting over on a new clean slate for this new year because I have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus, and I've got the victory! The devil is defeated because my God said for me to call on His name and He will save me. My friends, I am relying on God's promises instead of man's because when the promises of man are not fulfilled, I get very disappointed. The psalmist in the Book of Psalms, Chapter 145:13-14 encourages me, "...The Lord is faithful to all His promises and loving toward all He has made. The Lord upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down." (NIV) What David is stressing across to me in this praise to the Lord is that the Lord is good to everyone He has made and will keep ALL His promises because the Lord is loyal to all He has made. I want you to pay close attention to one particular word, "loyal". How many of us can say we have loyal people in our lives or we are loyal to those in our lives? David praised God because of His loyalty to His people, those who have been defeated and those who are in trouble.

My friends, I am standing on the promises of God because I have the victory. As Tye Tribbett sings, "I've got the victory, the victory because whatever situation I face, I win..." My friends, if you want the victory, if you want to be redeemed by the blood of the Lamb, if you want to win, turn to the promises of the Lord. Just turn your life over to the Lord and submit to His will. God will give you the victory because that is what He promises to those who call on His name.

In Psalm 145:20, "The Lord watches over all who love Him, but all the wicked He will destroy." We just need to stand on the promises of the Lord because we know that the Lord is good to everyone and is kind and shows mercy. As David emphasized to us in v. 17, "everything that the Lord does is right." I am surely relying on the promises of the Lord!

Be blessed,
Therese from Belize
